    BOOK SIGNING CELEBRATING WORLD SEA TURTLE DAY

    NEW ARRIVAL HOT OFF THE PRESS

     


    In honor of “World Sea Turtle Day” Linda B. Spangrud, a local resident and an Alabama Sea Turtle Volunteer, will be hosting a book signing of her newly released second children’s book, “Miss Sandra and the Turtle People.” In 2019 her first book came out “Miss Ella and the Turtle People.”  A portion of the profit of the sales of these books will be given to Alabama Coastal Foundation (Share the Beach Turtle Protection Program).  

    It has always been Spangrud’s dream to write a children’s book.  Now, her dream has come true for the second time.  Spangrud, writes again about her passion and favorite topic “coastal living and sea turtle preservation”. 

    Miss Sandra portrays the story of a young turtle volunteer who comes to a life decision about her future and describes how she assists the Gulf Coast with environmental awareness.  Miss Sandra, after guidance from her turtle friends, realizes it is more important to follow your dreams and passions.  It informs children and families of the appropriate etiquette and rules for turtle protection and proper care of the beach environment.   It relays to children and families turtle environmental protection guidelines in a playful storyline with colorful turtle illustrations empathizing the “Leave Only Footprints” initiative. It teaches young readers about the health of the beaches and turtles themselves. 

    Spangrud encourages everyone to follow their passion – “Life will be more fulfilling when you do something you really care about!"

    Spangrud is inviting residents and visiting tourists to her book signing on Sunday, June 13, 2021 from 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM at Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar & Restaurant at OWA in Foley.
